Social Service Community Education as an Area of Training and Participation for Social Development
García, Amelia Molina
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
This paper presents the conditions and characteristics of a rural community education program in the Mexican context. The scheme of operation and participation of young people called Community Instructors (Instructores Comunitarios or IC) is innovative and worthy of recognition as a learning area, not only for school purposes but as one which promotes the development of social awareness and commitment for the common welfare. One in which identity-projects and social networking contribute in favor of the development of autonomy of participating subjects as well as of the social commitment, both for providing educational services and in their future everyday life. The data was obtained from the results of a research on indicators and processes for the formation of a political culture in ICs of CONAFE-Hidalgo (Molina, 2008 and 2011).
